Matt. Can you provide some more info.  From the pic's it suggests lack of moisture but I fear that more is involved.

As something of an in between measure.  Leave well alone apart fro making sure the plant is watered.  Please DON'T go applying loads of feeds etc,  NEVER FEED A SICK PLANT.  If need be. Let it carry on. Next season might prove that nothing is wrong.

In tune with Lyn.  Whether or not you have the receipt, get back to the supplier.  A word of advice.  Most garden centres now offer a two or three guarantee on their potted plants.  Take advantage of this.

Told you many times, do not mention my name on here, you are not and never will be, in tune with me!

Just pick them off, pick out the top shoots of all the plants and cut off any wispy bits, to promote more fresh growth lower down.

There is no cure really, you dont want to start spraying with this that and the other, they will be ok in a month or two.

I would but some may not, did you cut them back on planting to give the root sysyem a new start?

try to get the money back if you can, or at least replacements, I cant believe they cost 28.00 each!

You would do best to chuck out the dead ones then buy these as a replacement ( if the company wont reimburse that is)

On planting, cut a good 6 inches off the tops, and cut all those whippy bits off the original trees,  that will kick start the rots into strong growth.

 As Tetley says, get the sacking off so the roots can spread

Feed Fuchsia as you would tomato plants, when flowers start to appear.If you feed before it will just grow into a green plant. Mine have no signs of buds yet, but they will still be flowering almost to Christmas.
